I am a teacher and that means that I can leave at 6 am and not come home until 6 pm so I am always looking for recipes that don't require a lot of extravagant ingredients. I love to cook and make up recipes or tweek already written recipes to fit my and my family's tastes. I also love to cook for my dogs!
My favorite things to cook
I am eclectic in my tastes. I love everything from appetizers to desserts to breads! Sometimes I look up recipes because I have an ingredient to use up or because something has caught my eye.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love holidays because it is a big potluck event! I love trying to recreate my grandmothers bun recipe, I so need to take a baking class though!
My cooking triumphs
Recreating my Mothers vegetable soup and her poor man's cake! My Dad was the judge and he deemed them worthy!
My cooking tragedies
I have a hit and miss relationship with making homemade buns of any kind but especially my grandmothers with the pinch of this, hand full of that, no exact measurements!
